Yesterday the news came out that Tapatalk, the leading mobile forum app, is going to integrate Kin. Soon, Tapatalk users will receive Kin for posting quality content in the app and they can also send Kin to other creators on the platform. Adoption!
Tapatalk, the mobile forum application with an aggregate registered user base of 300 million, announced on Wednesday that the company seeks to build engagement by rewarding users with Kin tokens for creating worthwhile content. Currently, the Tapatalk platform hosts 200,000 forums based in 186 countries.
Kin is a decentralized ecosystem of digital services for daily life, but it is also a digital currency. The coin Kin was developed by the Canadian social media company Kik. The goal of Kin is to facilitate value transfers in digital services such as gaming applications and social media.
CEO of Tapatalk, Winter Wong, said about the partnership:
“Tapatalk’s integration of Kin marks a noteworthy development in our expansion to reach new users and cultivate further engagement within the broader forum community. The mechanics of Kin will surely benefit existing forum users, while bringing new users into the fold of vibrant, active online discussion communities.”
Besides giving Kin to users for posting quality content, Kin can also be used as a tipping coin on the platform. This similar to other projects like Reddcoin.
Dany Fishel, President of Kin, said the following:
“People contribute to online communities on a daily basis, but there isn’t an easy way for them to reward other users for their contribution to the discussion. We believe that Tapatalk will be a strong example of how Kin easily facilitates peer-to-peer transactions in apps once users begin rewarding each other for the creation of meaningful, engaging content.”
At the moment, Kin is ranked at the 125th position on CoinGecko, trading currently at $0.00003150, which is 30 times lower than the all-time high of January 2018.
